    I have the Lotus Track Exhaust on my GT430 and very pleased with it, even more so since the B&C Goodwood day due to no issues at all. Personally I think it’s more fitting on a car to have a Lotus supplied item albeit circa £700 more than something like The 2bular. Trevor.
  2. Are you running a standard intake system? If you have filters bolted straight to the carbs then that’s usually the problem as it will be taking in hot air from the engine bay. Trevor.

    They do have to be serviced every two years according to the manual but in reality I’d think you’d do it in year two to keep the warranty but after that they would be much the same as any other shock and attended to as and when you see/feel a difference. I think it partly allows for a fair amount of track use but also the seals are either thinner or perhaps not there at all in order to keep friction as low as possible given the application. Trevor.
  4. I believe the V12 that’s in it isn’t going in the production car but don’t know for certain. Outside looked pretty good but seemed a little less pleasing in the flesh for me. Likewise I’ve now seen the interior and agree it a bit Jules Verne. Trevor.
  5. Looks good, sounds good and a bit of Alfa 33 Stradale in the mix, I like. Trevor.
  6. Good work and well done. I have a bit of a hankering for an S3 N/A and prefer the S2 lines. Trevor.
  7. The two front PS2's for my GT430 which I assume are the same size were £550 fitted inc VAT. I know you don't want those but an example. Think a pair or rears are £750. Trevor.
  8. At Goodwood for the Bell & Colvill track day but should be able to come up straight after. Trevor.
  9. Glad you got where you wanted to noise wise. Can I ask what the cost of this is? Trevor.
  10. So you’re the fruit loop who can’t stop himself :-). Seen your car on a few occasions, very nice and quite an undertaking, hope it lives up to expectations. Trevor.

    Congrats on the new car, youll absolutely love it I'm sure. Trevor.
  12. As you say, if those are the figures then I’d be happy. Do you run a sensor and gauge in the car? Would be nice to know what’s going on when out on track, that’s the environment that’s harshest I’d think. Nice thing about supercharged over turbo is the consistency. Trevor.
  13. As Stu has said, can you please post the before and after AFR’s. Do you have any concerns that there is nothing left in the tank so to speak, once the car is on track and hot, to keep enough fuel going in to control temps? I know ignition will retard but then the extra is useless if not there when required. Trevor.
  14. Thanks for organising as always, nice place and lovely people not to mention the cars too. Trevor.
  15. All you S2 owner, what have you fitted to yours? @peteyg Trevor.
  16. Simon has a good point, from memory the standard tyre gets close to rubbing the inner wing as standard I seem to remember? Perhaps the 70 series are just that bit too big. Trevor.

    True there are a few available but if you want the Sparco seats that narrows it down a bit as does colour/location. Also better to deal with someone you know and trust, has a great reputation. I’ve not looked at what’s actually available new and unregistered on forecourts, makes a difference with manufacturers warranty. Also the reason I’ve not looked is important to me. If I’m edgey about ownership then I tend to watch what’s available and the prices. If I’m happy then it doesn’t bother me at all, as is the case here. Trevor.
  18. Ooooh, red interior, don’t think I’ve seen one like that before, very nice. Trevor.

    It’s a great colour and @Sizona had as possibly his top choice before he went Military Grey. Keep us posted on progress, must be one of the last GT430’s for sure. Trevor.

    I’m surprised this hasn’t sold already, the GT 430 is the best all round car I’ve ever driven, by some margin. Hope the deal can be done and look forward to hearing what you think. Trevor.
  21. Congrats Paul, looks great. Trevor.

    It’s the Lotus lighter version. Trevor.
